Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $12

I am a multimedia project manager with over four years of experience. By project manager I mean that I wore all the hats at some point or another. The projects involved managing many video and caption files, ensuring quality of both video edits and transcription work, and creating graphics. I have transcribed videos myself, and edited and proofread the transcription work that was hired out. My husband has encouraged me to put my incessant reading and grammar obsession to good use.

Service Description

I am determined to do a great job for you. There is no job too small. I love feedback and learning. If given the opportunity, I will work tirelessly to ensure you receive quality work. It is my preference to build a relationship with a small number of clients because then I can really get to know exactly what you need.

TRANSCRIPTION
I can transcribe anything you need. I have a great deal of experience in transcription, as I worked for an educational company and our primary focus was teaching videos. My first job in the company was to manage the transcription and to fill in for the transcriptionist as needed, or when files were left to the last possible second and needed to be transcribed quickly.

PROOFREADING/ EDITING
I am an avid reader of a variety of genres and enjoy picking apart grammatical issues, spelling errors, and bad sentence structure. I can proofread any articles, books, manuscripts, etc., that you need polished.

The majority of my college courses were centered around biology, so I am very comfortable with scientific language. I will proofread scientific articles and will provide research assistance.

DATA ENTRY
I am obsessed with making spreadsheets for just about everything. I find data entry more enjoyable than most people think is sane.
